tone-deaf

GitHub stars PyPI

tone-deaf is an esoteric programming language which manipulates a stack based on chords. This repository contains a reference interpreter for the language as well as the wiki describing each function.

tone-deaf can be installed through pip:

pip install tone-deaf

Running from a file

Programs can be run from a file in one of two modes: normal or 'lyric' mode. Lyric mode allows you to leave comments on every other line, like so:

E E E
The above takes 3 integers.
A7 A7
This will calculate (a ** (b ** c)).

which the intepreter reads as:

E E E A7 A7

Normal mode assumes there are no comments. To load a file in normal mode, use the -f option, i.e. tone-deaf -f program.deaf. To load a file in lyric mode, use the -l switch along with the -f option, i.e. tone-deaf -l -f program.deaf.

Using the REPL

If no file is provided via the switches above, you will be provided with a REPL. This will work the same was as the paring for normal files would, except the stack is persistent throughout the entire execution. Example:

td> E E E
1
2
3
[1 2 3]
td> Em7
[1 2 3 3]
td> E7#9
[3 3 2 1]
td> A7 A7 A7
[19683]
td> quit
...

The stack will be printed out after each line entered.
